Little "Bacon Bit"...... meet G, 8 days old


Wow, I can't believe it is 2009 already. As some of you may know 2009 is bringing some big changes to the Ramirez household. My husband and I are expecting our 4th child in March of 2009. It really is coming up fast.

I am taking advantage of this cold weather and using the time to re-organize Tina Ramirez Photography. I will soon be creating a website and a big "thank you" goes out to all my clients who are allowing me to use their photos to showcase my work.

Until spring is here, I will not be doing any photo sessions. I will be spending this time enjoying my family and organizing the business. I have enjoyed photographing all my clients in 2008 and look forward to seeing some new faces and continuing to do some work for my past clients in 2009.

If you would like to be added to my mailing list, please see the "contact information" on the right side of the blog. You can just email me your email address and request to be added to the mailing list. Your email info will never be given out to anyone else so you don't have to worry about being bombarded with junk email. I will let you know when the website is up, when I start shooting sessions again, and any specials I may have going on.

During my "winter off time" I do have a limited number of openings for maternity and newborn sessions. Please contact me if you are interested.

Thank you and have a great winter!

Read our friends adoption journey......

Our dear friends the Hollis's are in the process of adopting a little girl from Ukraine. It has proven to be a trying process for them but they are doing wonderful and it has been such a pleasure to follow their journey.

There are so many adoptable children in the world and just not enough people willing to adopt them.

Did you know that when a special needs child hits a certain age in Eastern European countries (I believe it is 5 or 6 ) then they are sent to an institution to live out the rest of their lives, if they are not adopted. Alot of these children have such small disabilities but it is hard to tell because they are not given the one to one attention or have access to all the special programs we have in the United States.

I just wanted to share the Hollis's story. Adoption is costly, if you feel moved or called to help their mission then I know it would be appreciated.

You can read their story here:

Thank you.
